MODCLIM Kick-off Meeting: 1-2 December

Next week, December 1st and 2nd, will be held at the ULPGC the kick-off meeting of the Project entitled "Strategic Partnership for the Development of Training Workshops and Modeling Clinic for Industrial Mathematics" (MODCLIM), which will gather representatives from nine universities of the consortium in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria.

MODCLIM is a strategic partnership project in the field of higher education, which has been approved in the call 2014 for Erasmus Plus, Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and exchange of good practice.

Progress of industry and novel engineering solutions are increasingly depending on computational approach, modeling and simulation. Mathematical technologies are needed to produce effective design processes, accelerate test cycles, spur innovation, support systems integration schemes and control the production models. Industrial mathematics is among the next generation methodologies in R&D and knowledge management. This presents a challenge for university education, curriculum development, training practices and research collaboration.

With the main aim to contribute addressing these challenges, the project develops and integrates a research training course and a problem solving workshop, for the challenging mathematical and computational problems from industry and applied sciences; every year, during a period of two years.

The purpose is to train each year a group of 20-25 PhD and advanced undergraduate (MSc, BSc) level students, addressing six industrial problems from leading edge technological development.
